Merry Christmas + We Decorated Sugar Cookies! | Blogmas Day 18

Merry Christmas, everyone! I must admit that I had so much fun today while celebrating the Birth of Jesus! Spending time with family was an amazing experience! After we completed our Christmas prayers, it was gift opening time! I loved every single present that I received. My gifts varied from art supplies, to a winter tracksuit, to scarves, to a remote control car! Talk about blessed! God is so good.

Here’s a little sneak peak of me opening my presents with Goodmommy!

If you want to see more of what I got this Christmas, comment down below #gifthaul! If we get enough comments, then I might post a video of me sharing everything that I got for Christmas!

After the gift unwrapping was over, me and Goodmommy decided to decorate Christmas cookies together for the very first time. I really enjoyed doing something new, and ushering in yet another Christmas tradition into our home.

Finally, my love for Food Network Baking Championship shows has payed off! 😂

Here are my cookies! I learned the little swirl inside from baking competitions! I think it came out pretty great!
These are Goodmommy’s cookies! I’m so proud of her for making them look so cute! I also love what the cookie on the right says, “Jesus!”

I don’t know about you, but I think they came out pretty good-looking! (And they were absolutely delicious too! The outline was a bit crispy, but the inside was soft and moist! Very good sugar cookies, overall!)

Question of the Day: What did you do this Christmas? What was your favorite part(s)?

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are having and/or have had an extremely merry, joyful, happy, family-filled, and blessed Christmas!

I’ll see you all later, everyone! Bye! ❤️🎄❤️

3 Benefits of Learning How to Code

What’s up, my peeps? Today, I wanted to talk about something new! Now, I’ve already told you guys about my Visual Art class that I’m taking, this year. However, I never told you about my second elective: coding! ✨

Also, just in case you don’t know what coding is, it is basically a set of instructions that tell a computer what to do. Coding is used to make a lot of games and websites. They are also used in a lot of companies. Just a few include NASA, Facebook, and Netflix! And, believe it or not, learning how to code can actually give you many great opportunities for the future! Besides, we practically live in a world where most things are centered around technology.

Let’s get started with the benefits of coding!

#1. It can get you a great job, whether it involves coding or not.

Coding can actually be a great skill to have under your belt, especially because it can help you get a great job, even if it doesn’t involve coding. Many celebrities, such as comedian Jimmy Fallon, NBA star Chris Boss, and actress Angela Basset all know how to code. You may not be aware, but, as well, a majority of companies are in need of coders. By learning how to use different coding languages (such as HTML and Python), you can get a great and well-paying job, even at a young age!

2. It can improve your math or algebra skills.

The steps that are required in coding can include using logic, and breaking down the code, or directions, into small steps to type the code correctly. This not only allows you to practice your critical thinking skills, but it can also help improve your sense of logic or analyzing problems, therefore helping you get a better grade on your algebra test!

3. It be a fun hobby.

If you are a teenager, like myself, you might not be too worried about getting a job, yet. Which, is understandable. I mean, that’s years from now. Even if you aren’t concerned about that type of stuff, coding can still be a fun activity to do. From personal experience, I can confirm that it can actually be quite enjoyable. It could even help your social life, especially if you join a coding club. Also, it makes you feel super smart when you’ve just succeeded to do a new code for the first time, lol.

Okie dokie, everyone! I really hope that you enjoyed those 3 Benefits of Learning How to Code. It can be a hobby, a job opportunity, or even a way to help you improve in algebra class. I mean, that all sounds pretty good to me! ✨

If there’s anything in particular that you’d like me to provide tips or other information about (of course, no inappropriate requests, please), then please comment them down below! You never know, I just might write a blog about your prompts, in the future!

Have a fun, happy, and beautiful day, everyone!
